The fundamental teachings of Covenant Christian Center are reflected in the following statements:
1 – We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Scriptures as originally given according to I Corinthians 2:13 and II Timothy 3:16.
2 – We believe in one God manifested in the triune Godhead as God the Father, Jesus Christ the only begotten son, and the Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible as seen in Matthew 28:19 and II Corinthians 13:14.
3 – We believe in the creation of man as recorded in Genesis. We believe that man was tested, failed, and gained complete spiritual depravity and inability to attain to divine righteousness according to Romans 5:12 and 18.
4 – We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and became very God and very man in physical manifestation as foretold in Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6, and seen in Luke 1:26-35 and John 1:18.
5 – We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins through crucifixion, was buried, and rose again on the third day; personally appearing to His disciples as recorded in I Corinthians 15:1-4 and Romans 4:25.
6 – We believe that Jesus bodily ascended to heaven, and that He will appear the second time in literal and bodily form when He comes again for the Church as stated in John 14: 2-3 and I Thessalonians 4: 13-18.
7 – We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith, by the perfect work of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary by which we are able to obtain remission of all sin according to Ephesians 2:8-9, Hebrews 9:12, and Romans 5:11.
8 – We believe in water baptism, by immersion, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as commanded by Christ in Matthew 28:19, and Acts 2:36-39, 19:1-6.
9 – We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the Scriptural evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance as first experienced by the Church in Acts 2:1-4, 8:14-17, 10:44-46.
10 – We believe in the operations of the Gifts of the Spirit as identified in I Corinthians 12:14, and manifested in the Early Church.
11 – We believe in a Spirit-filled, Spirit-led life, lived in separation from the world. This mature spiritual life is maintained by living a life of holiness, in the fear of God. This is an expression of our faith toward God as seen in Ephesians 5:18 and II Corinthians 6:14, 7:1.
12 – We believe that bodily healing is provided for all in the atonement as evidenced in Acts 4:30, Romans 8:11, I Corinthians 12:9, and James 5:14.
13 – We believe in partaking of the Lord’s Supper, the Holy Communion, for all believers as seen in I Corinthians 11:23-32.
14 – We believe in eternal life for believers as seen in John 5:24 and John 3:16.
15 – We believe in eternal punishment for unbelievers as seen in Mark 9:43-48, II Thessalonians 1:9, and Revelation 20:10-15.
16 – We believe in the reality and person of Satan, and eternal judgment of Satan and his fallen angels as pronounced in Matthew 25:41 and Revelation 20:10-15.
17 – We believe in the Biblical form of church leadership as exhibited in the five-fold ministry. The apostle is ordained for church establishment, the evangelist is the exhorter of the Gospel, the teacher is the clarifier of the Gospel, the prophet is the foreteller and edifier of the body, and the pastor is the spiritual leader and head of the local body.
18 – We believe that church leaders must be appointed on the basis of their exemplary spiritual life, personal integrity, strong character, well-ordered domestic life, and wise leadership ability.
19 – We believe that every born-again believer must be in subjection to God’s authority in a specific local church for spiritual protection and long term fruitfulness as seen in Hebrews 13:17.
20 – We believe that the local church is autonomous, self-governing, self-supporting, and self-propagating.
21 – We believe that the theological framework for all of God’s dealings with mankind is found in the Divine Covenants revealed in Scripture.
22 – We believe that we are covenant people serving a covenant God, and that our relationship with Him is established on the tenets contained in His covenants.
